Rick Ross assassination attempt might have links to Gangster Disciples
Jan-30-2013 328 0


There is no shortage of suspects in Monday's assassination attempt on well-known rap star Rick Ross. And they all lead back to Chicago.

Ross survived a shooting ambush in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Monday morning.

The worst kept secret in the rap world has been a dispute between Ross and the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples. Ross was apparently targeted by gang leaders after he used some of their signs, symbols and logos without paying them the required fees.

Over the past few months, gang members have posted video death threats against the rapper on YouTube. Monday, a hit squad opened fire on Ross in South Florida.

There was a spray of gunfire just before daybreak on the silver Rolls Royce being driven by rapper Rick Ross, stage name for William L. Roberts.

"Nine or 10 shots, rapid fire," said a witness. "AK-47 or pretty large rifle, it was definitely a rifle."

Fort Lauderdale police tell the I-Team that they cannot confirm nor dismiss whether the allege threats to the rap star are legitimate but that detectives are examining the forensic evidence.

Despite all the bullets, rapper Ross, celebrating his 37th birthday Monday, was not hurt and neither was his girlfriend in the car, which crashed into an apartment.

Videos claiming to have been posted by Gangster Disciple members in cities across the U.S. all say that the rapper needs to pay the gang or he will be killed.

Authorities in South Florida say the motive for the attack is unclear.

Farrah Franklin, a former member of Beyoncé's early group Destiny's Child, was arrested Sunday morning for disorderly conduct in Conway, South Carolina, police reports say.

Franklin, 33, was with the group for five months in 2000 before exiting.

The group claimed Franklin missed several events and that they were forced to ask her to leave. MTV confirmed that Franklin had missed at least one recent performance around that time. Franklin later told E! that "I felt like I was losing my identity … I just couldn't handle the situation … I had to leave."

Franklin was booked around 5 a.m. EST Sunday and released shortly after noon the same day, according to the Horry County Sheriff's Office.

Hours before the arrest, she posted a picture of herself on the beach to Instagram.

Franklin later posted the image below, adding, "I'm good just hate the dumb media sometimes, but hey this is the job I signed up for. So I respect it."

TMZ, which first reported the story, notes that Franklin was also arrested in L.A. in 2011 for disorderly conduct and later claimed she was the victim of racial profiling.

Christina Milian is dating Lil Wayne, a source reveals exclusively to Us Weekly. The new relationship comes one month after Us broke news that the singer called off her engagement to fiance Jas Prince.

"It is totally true," the insider tells Us. "They are hooking up."

Milian, 32, and the rapper, 31, were recently photographed holding hands at the 2014 ESPY Awards at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre on Wednesday, July 16. The new lovebirds sat with each other and were spotted smiling ear-to-ear during the big show hosted by Drake.

Milian and Rap-A-Lot Records CEO Prince began dating in 2010 and announced they were going their separate ways last month.

Amidst the split, Milian posted a telling message via Instagram. "There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right," she wrote on June 12. "Pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living."

“Treme” actor Rob Brown is settling his explosive “shop-and-frisk” racial profiling lawsuits against Macy’s and the city, new court papers show.

“The court has been informed that the parties have reached a settlement in principle,” Manhattan Federal Judge Lorna Schofield wrote Thursday with regard to Brown’s twin actions against the department store and the city.

Brown, 30, whose breakout performance was in the 2000 movie “Finding Forrester,” claimed he was handcuffed, “paraded” through the Macy’s flagship Herald Square store and detained on June 8, 2013 after being accused of using a fake credit card to buy his mother a $1,300 watch.

The HBO series star slapped Macy’s and the city with false imprisonment, negligent training and civil rights allegations, seeking unspecified money damages and a court order forcing Macy’s and the NYPD to stop the alleged practice of targeting minorities who shop at high-end stores.

A spokeswoman for Macy’s said, “The lawsuits by various plaintiffs who alleged racial profiling by Macy’s have been settled in principle. We are making no further comment.

“Our company strictly prohibits discrimination of any kind and has zero tolerance for racial profiling.”

A lawyer for the city said, “A settlement has been reached in principle, but the details are still being finalized.”

A spokeswoman for Macy's said in a statement that, "Our company strictly prohibits discrimination of any kind and has zero tolerance for racial profiling."

Brown’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, confirmed the news but declined to comment on the terms of the settlement.

Wigdor represents other people who have brought or threatened to bring lawsuits over similar Macy’s incidents.

Those cases, including that of Maria Paez, have also been settled in principle.

Paez said she was with her 12-year-old son last September trying on clothes and putting items she wanted to buy into a Macy’s bag to take to the checkout counter when she was stopped and tossed into the in-store jail.

Schofield says Brown can refile the lawsuits within 60 days if the settlement falls apart.

Katt Williams is under criminal investigation for committing a deadly form of whip lash ... so claims a man who says the comedian used his Rolls-Royce in an attempt to mow him down.

Katt was tooling around near LAX Tuesday ... when a guy named Glen Jackson pulled alongside and tried to snap a cell phone pic. Jackson says it triggered a volcanic reaction from Katt.

Katt and a bodyguard allegedly got out of the car, tried grabbing Jackson's phone, then pepper sprayed him.

Jackson says he stumbled out of the car, choking from the fumes, when Katt rolled his Rolls smack into his leg ... then doused him in pepper spray again before driving off.

Inglewood police are investigating a possible assault with a deadly weapon -- the Rolls. They'd like a chit chat with Katt and the bodyguard.

It's the 4th violent confrontation with Katt in 2 weeks ... two altercations on PCH ... and an alleged gun attack at an L.A. comedy club.

An upbeat Tracy Morgan flashed the victory symbol and sent a grateful message to fans Monday morning as he spoke for the first time since the car accident that nearly killed him.

Moving gingerly and leaning on a walker, the 45-year-old comedian painstakingly hitched himself into a waiting Lincoln Navigator that had been pulled into the garage of his Cresskill, N.J., home.

As the black vehicle eased down the driveway, Morgan rolled down the passenger side window to greet reporters with a smile.

“I’m OK, I feel strong,” he said.

“Love you, thank you very much. Appreciate it,” he added, after some of the photographers gave him a brief burst of applause.

The “30 Rock” star suffered several cracked ribs and a severely broken leg when his Mercedes-Benz limousine was rear-ended by a speeding Wal-Mart tractor-trailer June 7, authorities said.

The former “Saturday Night Live” comedian was airlifted from the New Jersey Turnpike by helicopter to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital. He spent two weeks there before he was moved for a three-week stay at a rehab facility.

Morgan was noticeably thinner Monday and had a visible scar across his right temple.

He was accompanied by his fiancée and his infant daughter, as well as a female home health aide.

Morgan's close pal, James (Uncle Jimmy Mack) McNair, was killed in the crash.

Morgan has filed a suite against Wal-Mart over the June 7 accident, which left him injured and a close friend dead.

Last Thursday, the Bronx-born Morgan sued Wal-Mart, contending the retail giant was negligent because its driver, Kevin Roper, 35, hadn't slept in 24 hours before the crash.

Roper, of Jonesboro, Ga., was charged with death by auto and assault by auto.

Roper has pleaded not guilty and denies he fell asleep at the wheel before the lethal moment of impact.

"We are giving each and every show all we've got until his return — and will continue giving the fans 110 percent each night."

In a video posted online, Brown was seen struggling to keep up with fellow New Edition members during a dance routine before leaving the stage during the group's July 2 show in Southaven, Miss.

The five other New Edition members will complete the remaining 16 shows of the All Six reunion tour without Brown.

A judge has sent Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill to jail for three to six months for violating his probation on a 2009 drug and gun case.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Mill and his lawyer spent almost four hours Friday (July 11), trying unsuccessfully to persuade the judge not to lock him up.

Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, has been a regular in court for nearly two years. He has been disputing the terms of his probation.

The newspaper says Mill had booked concerts between July 11 and Aug. 11, before the judge had ordered him to stop while she tried to resolve his probation problems.

Mill was supposed to headline a concert Friday night in Washington. The judge told the 27-year-old rapper's attorney that wasn't going to happen.

“Chappelle’s Show” funnyman Donnell Rawlings apologized twice to police when he was caught driving drunk in a 1958 Cadillac Eldorado in Hell’s Kitchen Friday morning, prosecutors said at his arraignment.

Rawlings, 46, had a blood alcohol level of .123, above the legal limit of .08, when cops pulled him over for travelling the wrong way around 4 a.m. at 11th Ave. and W. 42nd St., prosecutors said.

“I’m sorry. I’m sorry,” Rawlings — who has also appeared in “Spider-Man 2” and the HBO drama “The Wire — allegedly told police.

“As an African-American, anytime you see police lights go on the first thing you say is, “I’m sorry’ … Whether you’re guilty or not,” he quipped outside Manhattan Criminal Court, nearly 12 hours after his arrest.

While in holding before his arraignment, Rawlings said fellow detainees applauded him for his “Ashy Larry” character on Dave Chappelle’s sketch comedy show.

But the comedian acknowledged that the incident was not a laughing matter.

Rawlings apologized to police after he was pulled over around 4 a.m. in Hell’s Kitchen.

“It was an unfortunate incident,” he said after seeing the judge, surrounded by a group of friends who were there to support him. “I don’t think it's funny.”

Rawlings was released on his own recognizance and his driving privileges in New York were suspended by Judge Erika Edwards pending the outcome of the DWI case.

He was charged with two counts of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and one count of operating a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol. He’s due back in court on Aug. 20.

Three of the hottest rockers on the metal scene aren’t out of middle school yet, but the Brooklyn boys just signed a huge record deal.

Sony has committed to producing at least two albums with Unlocking the Truth — and it has an option for four more records.

Guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, 13, bassist Alec Atkins, 13, and drummer Jarad Dawkins, 12 — who have played at gigs all over the country, including appearances at Coachella festival in California and opening for Guns N’ Roses — are promised an advance of $60,000 for their first recording. The second record could net them an advance as much as $350,000.

If Sony sticks with them for all six albums, the kids could be raking in as much as $1.7 million.

“It’s so exciting. We’re jumping over the moon,” said Jarad’s mother, Tabatha Dawkins.

“What started out as play dates went to Times Square and now this. It’s been one great thing after another,” she said.

Since they were discovered in Washington Square Park by Eric Clapton’s drummer, Steve Jordan, in 2012, Dawkins said, the boys have gotten gigs all over the region, including the Apollo Theater and Webster Hall.

Guitarist Malcolm is 13. His mom serves as the group's co-manager.

They’re currently seeing the country as part of the nationwide Vans Warped Tour.

The trio of teens and a tween all share singing duties. They’ve been taking lessons now that their voices have dropped.

Dawkins said Jordan introduced them to “Welcome Back Cotter” writer Alan Sacks, who is now acting as their manager.

Annette Jackson, Malcolm's mother and the group’s co-manager, said Jolene Cherry from Sony reached out and wanted to offer a contract over the phone, but to prove the label’s interest, she flew the boys to Los Angeles where they gave a private performance that sealed the deal.

Bassist Alec, 13, and his group were discovered in Washington Square Park in 2012.
The papers were filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, since the boys are minors and any contracts with minors need court approval in New York State.

Dawkins said the boys are all entering the eighth grade at different schools in Brooklyn next year and they’re all good students.

“School work comes first. If their school work is not done, they don’t play,” she said.

Dawkins said the boys, who have a contract to do a book on their rise to success to be released by Penguin around Christmas, are also filming a documentary about their experiences.
